Experts estimate that the main causes of injuries are fatigue, excess muscle tension and lack of flexibility.  Upwards of ninety percent of disease is stress-related. And perhaps nothing ages us faster, internally and externally, than high stress.  Bodywork and Active Isolated Stretching can help you support general health and well-being and/or facilitate the healing process of some injuries, such as muscle tears or sprains. Massage can increase circulation, promote relaxation, reduce stress, and reduce pain by stimulating the release of endorphins- the body’s natural painkillers.  

Swedish/Deep tissue massage can help alleviate low-back pain and improve range of motion, reduce pain associated with tension headache, temporomandibular joint (TMJ) dysfunction, poor posture or scoliosis, and repetitive stress injuries to muscles and tendons (such as tennis or golf elbow) and massage can enhance immunity by stimulating lymph flow—the body’s natural defense system.

This session is good for athletes, before and after events, to drain away fatigue, to relieve swelling, to reduce muscle tension, to promote flexibility and to prevent injuries, and anybody looking to relieve body aches and pains caused by muscle tension.
